About:

The message was unexpected but instantly recognizable. 

A voice resonated from a distance and somehow from within.  Against all earthly logic, it carried a divine command.  And five very different people knew they were summoned to obey.

Their actions were demanding, but not particularly grand.  Only later would they see a pattern emerge – one that links their tasks together and comes to challenge the cultural direction of the nation.  They realize that one small personal response unveiled a new realm of moral responsibility.  And this affirmation of everyday hope captures the attention of millions.

But power and money are at stake.  Malicious elements soon align themselves to counter the trend.  To succeed they must also undermine its source.  Can we really believe that God speaks to people today?  Surely this must be dismissed as superstition or delusion.  These well-intentioned but misguided individuals should not be allowed to cast our society back into the Dark Ages.

The public debate and media frenzy place an unprecedented spotlight on knowing and doing God’s will.  The five encounter threats, but try to remain steadfast in their faith.  Had God indeed imparted wisdom on selected individuals?  Is this sweep of events part of his divine purpose?

The movement may herald a profound renewal – one that some are calling The Turning

My thoughts:

I requested to review this book based on another review I read. It sounded so good.

I have to say I didn’t love this book. It all seemed so random to me and it took a long time to all come together. I just never connected with the characters. Maybe because there were so many point-of-view characters?

I never got invested in this story, I’m sad to say. I really wanted to like it because it sounded so good and has gotten great reviews. But unfortunately, this one wasn’t for me.

As always, this is my opinion only and this might be a book you enjoy.
